Poach the Eggs:

Char the tomatoes:
- Toss the tomatoes in the remaining 1 tbs olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt.
- Char the tomatoes over the open flame
- OR: Toss onto a baking sheet and place in the oven under the broiler until bursting and charred, 3 to 5 minutes with a watchful eye.
Put it all together:
- Toss the tomatoes into the ground lamb, arrange the eggs over over top and garnish with olives, parsley, thyme, and additional salt and pepper.
- Serve with naan, tzatziki sauce, and olive oil for dipping if desired and enjoy.
